1968 Buffalo Bills vs. Cincinnati Bengals


The Cincinnati Bengals opened their inaugural season with a 2-1 record before a severe nosedive knocked them out of any postseason contention in 1968.  The Bengals were coming off a 24-10 victory over the Denver Broncos in Week Two, and in this game against the Bills showed more flashes of early season brilliance.
